I found a lot of great information at www.trmicels.com. They did a multi yr birthing study and say the rut runs at the same time each yr. All state dates are listed.
Yep everyone makes "predictions" each year but photoperidism (the shortening of days) has the same effect every year, year in year out, as well as the same time frame.
Around here Nov 1st through the 12th is the best pre-rut action and the best time to find a giant cruisin.
Charles Alshiemer puts allot of focus on the rut by moon phase, which in my opinion and many others has proven to be inaccurate by most accounts.
